Getting Stuff Done and Remembering Bill

Happy Tuesday.

Yesterday was quite a productive day.  I got a bunch of new jeans recently because the forest fire between my thighs is getting two pairs dangerously close to playing show and tell.  I found some jeans 50% off and grabbed two pairs and then I wanted some REAL jeans, not that that crappy stretch which blows out the thighs quicker, so I ordered two pairs of Lee Riders from their website.  They are definitely not forgiving, so I went up a few sizes.  I'm past being worried about a number on a tag, I just want crap that fits.  I ran all of the jeans through the wash to get all of the residue of funky dyes off of them. 

While that was going on, I had my first actual sunny day in like three weeks, so I was able to get some work that required good lighting.  That means I've got a buttload of work ahead of me today, but once it's done, I might be able to breathe for another week or two.  I've got a goodly amount of vacation posts done which will be such a load off.  I had hoped to get in an early workout but with the light finally available, I ended up putting in 6 hours of work, and that didn't happen until the Mr. was leaving work.  I chose A Little More Obsessed Day 2: Legs.  The Mr did his before work and told me I was in for it.  He was right.  I knew that going in though because I previewed it but yeah.  A pretty good butt kicker.  We were both hobbling like 90-year-olds so today should be interesting.  I'm going to wait and see how I feel before choosing today's workout which is supposed to be cardio.

We watched Twister to honor the two year passing of Bill Paxton.  I still can't believe he's gone.  I'd like to think when Bill got there, Dusty gave him a nice, big "it's the EXTREEEEME!"

We quote that movie SO much, it's not even funny. 

Actually, we quote Bill a lot.  "Yer stewed buttwad."  "Ya took'er ya damn thief!"  and so many others.  Truly one of the most underrated actors ever and his love for the business both in front of and behind the camera is friggin' fascinating.  I think it's on the extras on the Bluray if you ever want a good watch.  I had no idea how his dad influenced him and his relationship with Jim Cameron.  He just loved all aspects of the business and considered it an honor to bring escapism to the masses. 

Forgive any typos, I forgot to do my post until after my editor hit the hay.

What's your favorite movie quote?

  1. It is such a loss. He was too young and you wonder if he would have been with us longer if he hadn't gone in for proactive heart surgery. I've liked him ever since I first saw him when I was a kid and quoted Chet from Weird Science and really he has always been quotable from just about any movie he's been in. Such a huge loss.

  2. I'm so happy to hear you had such a productive day and got some good lighting for a change and cranked out a ton of work with it! What a good feeling that is! And congrats on getting new jeans that feel and fit good. I have two styles that I wear and they are the only ones I wear so I buy them in multiples because I'll end up wearing them out at some point. lol They are two totally different styles, but they work well on me, so I hope they don't go away.
